I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have a Windows 8.1 Laptop and yesterday it said I had no connections.
My computer is wireless but then it went to Ethernet it didn't let me connect to anything either.
I tried looking things up to see how to fix it but it just kept talking about buying cables.

Anyone know whats wrong?

I'm not the most tech-savvy, and I'm having trouble with my old windows XP laptop (a Dell Latitude). It's worked fine with wireless and ethernet networking until recently.

At home, and elsewhere, I get a message telling me that I am connected to the internet (either through my wireless or through the ethernet jack): when I right-click on the connection (either Local Area Connection or my wireless card, depending on what is plugged in), the "status" says that my connection is good. Packets are sent and received (although far more are sent than received). But if I try to open a browser, I get the message saying that the browser could not connect ("Server not found" in Firefox). Similarly, windows tries to download updates, then the download quits.

At home I'm using a cable modem (Time-Warner RoadRunner is our high-speed provider) connected to an Apple Airport Express. My partner is able to connect perfectly wirelessly with her Mac with no problems, and in our previous apartment I could connect to the Airport Express with no difficulty (we had Comcast cable internet at the previous place). The password for the Airport Express hasn't changed, and I tried re-entering it with no luck. It is only since moving to a new house and new provider that I've had this problem, but the problem now occurs everywhere I go, so I'm afraid I messed something up in the search for a fix, or that the move is unconnected to the problem.

Hey all,

I have had this issue for a while now and i have attempted many things even restoring Windows back to factory settings.

My HP Windows laptop connects fine to my BT home hub 3 via wireless with no issues but the ethernet connection just recognises a local network and has no internet connectivity.

my ethernet connection just never gets an IP address and always assigns itself a 169.x.x.x address.

Originaly thinking it may be a hardware issue i booted into a Linux live cd to double check and the ethernet connection worked with no issues at all.

I have tried numeorus things to try and resolve it-

updated drivers / alternative drivers
reset TCP/IP
restored windows back to factory installation
assiginged static IP address
removed anti virus / firewall software
different router
please does anyone have any ideas of a possible solution?

many thanks in adavnce.

I am trying to make it so that Windows 7 will automatically prefer a wired internet connection over wireless when I connect an ethernet cable to my computer.

I was able to follow the instructions here:

How To Change The Network Adapter Priority In Windows 7 | LNN: Levy News Network

But it looks like after some period of time, Windows resets the order of preference of my connections to what it was before. Is there some fix for this issue?

Thank you

A:Windows 7 resets priority of Wireless over Ethernet Connection

What are the speeds of the wired and wireless connection? Windows should use the one with the most amount of possible bandwidth. Normally this is wired however if you are using newer wireless standards then it may prefer that.

Many thanks,

Looking for some help here as I'm stuck.
3 year old Toshiba laptop (Satellite P100). Ethernet and wireless both worked fine with XP. Since upgrading to Windows 7, my wireless is fine, but I can't connect to the internet via Ethernet. Other computers in the house are connected to my router (linksys WRT54GL) and work fine. I've set up an IP address manually (like I have on the other computers) with no luck. Automatically setting it will not work either. I'm using just TCP/IPv4 (v6 is unchecked, older router doesn;t support it). I've played with just about everything I can think of and still no luck.
The strange thing is that when I try to load a website, the data seems to trickle in for a second. For example, going to google.com, it will look like its loading, but nothing will come up. Then just the text will come up after maybe 20 seconds, but the logo (ie graphics) will not. It will just hang there and time out. Any normal webpage I visit will just sit on a blank screen then Firefox will report it's "done" at the bottom, but nothing will be displayed.

I also cannot log-on to my router, same problem, it will not load the web interface page, and will just time-out.

Under the "Network and Sharing" center everything appears to be fine. It will say I am connected to my network, and the diagnostics will not find anything wrong. Still, no internet.

When I plug an ethernet wire from a router to the ethernet port on my computer, nothing seems to happen. There is no LAN option under my "network connections" either. My first guess is that I don't have the correct driver installed (or if I have one at all for the ethernet). Can anyone help me? I tried to open up the computer to see the brand of the Ethernet card but Some of the screws were stuck and I couldn't seem to open it. It is a Laptop running Windows XP by the way. I bought it at cyberpowerpc.com. Thanks very much for any help.

Hi, I currently connect to the internet through a wired ethernet port in the wall which connects to my university's network.

I want to make this wireless since I bought a new macbook and was wondering if this product would do it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006PYGWG6

A:Ethernet and Wireless

Your internet speed is determined by your provider and the package you have, it is irrelevant how fast your connection to router is as long as it is at least a little faster than speed to the provider. So you can not change the internet speed above what provider gives you.

A:Ethernet Yes, Wireless No?

Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007
Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

When we open a web browser we have to enter a username and password to be able to go online. I was wondering if there is any bit of Hardware which i could plug into the ethernet wall socket which would then broadcast that ethernet connection as wireless and if so if it is possible to protect the connection so others cant use the WIFI.

That probably means that they want to restrict usage to one computer per connection and do not want wireless networks set up. So, please check with the IT department before doing anything, as it's not very hard for them to detect violations.

On the assumption that you will not attempt this unless it falls within the rules, you can use a Wireless Access Point (WAP). Use encryption, preferably WPA2-PSK, AES, but at least WPA-PSK, TKIP. Use a passphrase that cannot be guessed and does not include dictionary words.

Here's something that is causing massive loss of hair.....

My PC is connected to my router with a wireless card. I also connect my PS2 to my PC using an ethernet connection (the ps2 is "modified" and I use this connection to play music and video thru the ps2 to the TV).

Everything works fine with one exception. It seems like the wireless is not getting a DNS. To obtain one, I have to disable the ethernet card, connect to my AP, then enable the card. If I lose my connect with the AP (which happens sometimes, it's on the other side of the house and the signal is a little weak), then when it reconnects I have to do the whole disable/enable thing.

It's not a huge deal, but I do like my stuff to work properly and usually things like this are not problem for me, but this one really has me wondering. Anyone have any ideas?

Here's my ipconfig /all if that helps. What's odd is the ipconfig is *exactly* the same when I can connect and when I can't. So maybe it's not a DNS issue, but something else. But I am unable to connect to any web sites until I disable and re-enable the ethernet card.

Hey all im new here, and this is my first post.
First of all I have a DSL connection through my provider. I then have a NetGear FM114P wireless firewall/print server (router ) attached to the modem.

My computer is currently hardwired through the ethernet port in the FM114P router with two other computers connecting by WiFi.

What i was thinking, was loosing the ethernet cord and turning this computer in to a wireless connection like the other two, but if i do will i loose speed? This computer currently gets between 700-950 kbps., depending on traffic.

I used to access my home wireless with a Netgear N150 Wireless USB adapter. The device still works, because I use it for Roku, but my computer can't access the wireless network with it. As a replacement I installed a TP-Link 300Mbps Wireless N PCI adapter (TL-WN851ND). That hasn't worked from the start. During the course of trying to fix the problem, I changed at least 10 different settings, and none of them worked. Now, I've lost track of all the changes I made.

I have a Linksys BEFW11S4 4 port wireless broadband router with 2 x wireless laptops that can see each other and share files fine. I also have a PC which is hardwired to the router. All 3 machines have an IP address from the range I configured and all 3 machines can access the internet. The problem I'm having is that my hardwired PC cannot see the workgroup I have set up so therefore it can't see the 2 wireless laptops. The 2 wireless laptops can see the hardwired PC but cannot connect to it to view the shared folders.

I have switched all firewalls off, changed lots of config in the router, reset it to default, rebuilt my hardwired PC, pulled out some hair, changed network settings all over the place but just cannot get the hardwired PC to see the workgroup.

Any suggestions anyone ! !

A:! ! ! ! ! Ethernet Can't See Wireless ! ! ! ! !

Well, as long as all three are getting DHCP addresses from the same network, then the router isn't to blame, so, get it configured and leave it alone.

You say you've setup a workgroup for the laptops. That desktop machine also needs to be a part of that same workgroup. Then, you need to have the same username and password combination on the three machines, and then the desktop should be able to share files with the laptops.

And you definitely want the firewalls disabled until you get things working.

Is there such a thing as a 5 Ghz Ethernet card, or is just 5 Ghz wireless?

A:Ethernet vs. wireless

No - 2.4/5 GHZ refer to the wireless frequency.

Ethernet comes in two speeds mostly - older 100 Mb/s (100 megabits) or more modern 1000 Mb/s (1 Gigabit). Of course, these are usually much faster than internet speeds even for slower 100 Mb/s unless you have amazingly fast broadband.

A:ethernet and wireless together

If I am going to use ethernet for an extended time I remove an external wireless adapter or switch an integrated wireless off. But that's to extend the life of the unused component and to save the battery if on battery. If you are using a PCI wireless card with the desktop then disabling it is probably the best you can do. But that is not going to impact your ethernet usage, so it is really your choice.

Please show the following for when you have an ethernet connection and for when it has dropped ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

A:Pc not getting wireless through ethernet

My ISP has supplied a Thompson Gateway router with wireless and 4 Ethernet ports. I connect to the internet from my desktop machine (Windows XP) via Ethernet.

My new Fujitsu Esprimo Mobile V6555 (Windows XP Professional) connects to the internet via wireless. I swapped to using Ethernet for a couple of days but when I wanted to use wireless again I failed. I tried lots of things but eventually did a “restore” to a date prior to the use of Ethernet and all was well again. I experimented and can now swap between the two PROVIDED I disable the wireless connection before plugging in the Ethernet cable.

I can understand the Fujitsu not being able to use both systems at the same time but was surprised that having them both connected should then disable the wireless connection requiring a “restore” to get it back. I contacted Fujitsu and got the following response:-

“You should always be aware of whether you are connected to the wired or wireless network, and use only one network connection at a time. Your laptop can also be connected to both networks simultaneously, which can cause network instability, slow connectivity or confusing the OS!”

I would like to occasionally “network” the Fujitsu to the desktop machine using a spare Ethernet port on the router. This would only be used for basic exchange of files, no sharing of printers or scanners, or opening a file from one machine in an application running on the other, just very basic file exchange.

I'm running a Gateway DX4720-03 (manual: https://www.manualowl.com/m/Gateway%.../Manual/148002) with Windows 7 HP 64-bit and have a Nvidia GeForce 7100/nForce 630i card and a Linksys WRT 320N router. My problem is that I always thought that this desktop computer was wirelessly connected to the internet, but I just found out that it was connected via an ethernet cable. At the moment everything is working just fine (portable computer wirelessly synched with desktop, guests can easily access my wifi, no problems with the internet, etc), except when I try to set up my wifi camera as an access point and have the computer recognize it. It was at this point, after much, much research and fiddling, I discovered that my network was set up as a Local Area Connection using an ethernet cable. In fact, the router was never listed in Network (under Network Infrastructure) until I just now selected "Add a wireless device." But, when going to Device Manager, Network adapters has MS Teredo Tunneling Adapter and NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet and under Network Infrastructure Devices there is MS Wireless Router Module...the Linksys router doesn't show up here even though I just added it. From all this manipulation, it should be obvious that although I can very handily tweak my browser (Firefox), maintain a clean computer, solve various computer related problems - with help from the various forums, I am truly at a loss when it comes to networking and wireless set up.

Hello I have been having a problem with my ethernet work but wireless not. It basically says acquiring IP address then says limited connectivity. Im using a Dell Vostro 1520 laptop and a dlink router. Thanks for your help.

A:Ethernet works but wireless does not

You have no conflicting wireless managers installed try using only the Windows built in tool
Remove any unneeded wireless networks from your system.
Remove and re add your network back in, ensure all settings are configured correctly. Connect firstly with the cable and note down everything exactly. i.e. SSID, Security type, encryption type, security key.
If it still dosent work look into updating or rolling back the drivers for your wireless card.

Hi. I cannot connect to my wireless internet, however I can connect when using my ethernet cable. I don't usually have problems connecting to wireless and my other roommates are using the wireless without trouble, so I believe it is my computer. Help! Thanks!

Here is the support and driver downloads site for the Acer Aspire 4720Z laptop/notebook.

I suggest you add and save this site in your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can readily refer to it when needed.

You may need to reinstall or update the driver for the wireless device.

A friend brought over a computer for me to remove a virus, after checking out the computer found that the OS was hosed. So backed up data, and put a fresh istall of XP pro on the PC, legal copy not bootlegged. Couldn't get ethernet working, figured since he did have a several nasty viruses, I'd flash the BIOS, and right 0's to the drive just to make sure no nasties were still on the machine. All said and done, reinstalled XP Pro, on an Emachine T2862. Installed drivers. Installed a pci 3Com ethernet card, with the right drivers. No ethernet, cant get an IP, tried using a good static IP didn't conect to the internet, couldn't ping the router. Plugged in a Linksys wireless usb adapter, grabbed an IP right away. Tryied plugging the ethernet in, ethernets get IP's now, unplug usb and ethernet stops working. Plugged usb back in did all of the windows updates, including hardware. Tried Ethnet with the new drivers, still doesn't work. Tried Winsock fix, tried XP bat fix. Any other suggestions, I'm stuck.

Hi guys,

In my office we have a windows server, 10 pc's and 3 printers. All devices are interconnected through a wired network. We have some business applications installed on the server and set up them to launch from client computers. As we are going to move to a new office space we have an intention to say goodbye to the wired network and make everything wireless. My question is will we be able to launch the programs which have being installed on server from client computers via wifi?

Thank you.

I have 3 PC's (2 on XP and 1 on ME) and a laptop on XP. I am using a Linksys WRT54G Wireless router. The laptop is wireless. PC's are ethernet. All computers communicate with each other in common workgroup when I use an ethernet cable for the laptop. When I use wireless for the laptop, workgroup communication is lost with other machines. No porblems accessing internet with any machine, whether wired or wireless.

When I bring my laptop home, I plug in a Cat5 cable and boot it up. Windows 7 then hooks up to my router with both the cable and via wireless. When I then transfer files from it, they transfer at the lower wireless speeds. If I disable the wireless on the laptop, the transfer speed increases to Cat5 levels.

Is there some way to get it to use the wired connection instead of the wireless connection without having to disable the wireless adapter in Device Manager (which means I have to re-enable it when I take the laptop on the road again)?

A:Wireless vs Cat5 ethernet

When the eithernet cable is plugged in it takes over the wireless connection and only the wired connection is used. In other words it should be happening automatically as soon as you plug in the cable.

Quite a few have tested this including myself so unless your system is somehow different than everyone else's I can't imagine why you would be having this problem.

I was reading this thread on the steam forums and I know I have a realtek ethernet nic in my pc. I also have bad performance in tf2

My pc is connected to the internet through my wireless network though, which makes me think the above fix wouldn't work for me. Am I right, or does my wlan card interact with the realtek ethernet nic?

BTW, I'm posting here because most people on the steam forums don't seem to know what their talking about, at least when it comes to hardware.

I network an XP box and a 98 box via wired Ethernet. Currently, a DSL connection is shared via a Zoom modem with a built-in router (5651_X4_2_2) connected to a Linksys switch (EtherFast 10/100 5-Port Workgroup Switch EZXS55W).

Just bought a laptop with a wireless card installed and want to share Internet connection and files wirelessly as already done via wired Ethenet (between XP box and a 98 box). Laptop features VISTA Home Premium.

Instead of connecting the Laptop to the switch via a patch cable (to share DSL and files), thought maybe there's a type of Ethernet to wireless adapter product that simply plugs into a port on the switch that would in turn transfer a wireless signal to the laptop. Or not?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Sssstud,

Please let us know the message you see when you try to establish a wireless connection to the internet. Is your computer able to detect wireless networks? What version of Windows are you using and what is the model and name of the wireless router?

Thanks and regards,

My old Westell DSL modem died, and Verizon sent me an Actiontec model GT704WG. I have two desktops, both connected to the modem by ethernet cable, and a laptop, which uses the wireless capability of the modem. This worked fine with the old modem (until it died). I connected the cables to the new modem exactly as they were connected to the old modem. I'm now browsing happily on the laptop (i.e., wirelessly), but the desktops cannot connect to the Internet. Strangely, when I go to on one of the desktops, I get the setup page for the old modem rather than for the new one, even though the old modem is now sitting in a box. The status of the lights on the modem is as follows:

power - green
DSL - green
Internet - green
ethernet - not lit (all four of them)
USB - not lit
wireless - green

All computers are running Windows XP, SP-2.

How could wireless be working, but not ethernet? Usually it's the other way around!

Do I, perhaps, have to connect the modem to one of the desktops by USB cable? My understanding is that it's not necessary. If it is, do I need a driver from Verizon? They did not send a CD with the new modem. Is the driver available on the Internet somewhere?

Thank you!!

A:Solved: wireless OK, but no ethernet

ethernet - not lit (all four of them)Click to expand...

I take that to mean the ethernet ports are bad (have you tried them all?) or the cables are bad.

This may be the correct user manual: http://business.verizon.net/Help/dsl/Default.aspx?case=c13947

Try the USB port unless your computers are:

"Note: USB LAN port is not supported with Microsoft Windows
NT 4.0, Windows Vista 64-bit, or Mac OS."

That unit is a modem/router combo. The USB port is not to the modem part; it is a special LAN port, so no driver or special software should be needed.

This problem has confounded me.

1) Bought a new wireless router (it's a Corega CG-WLBARGNH router...I live in Japan).
2) Set it up fine with another laptop. On that laptop, both ethernet and wireless work great. On my HP Pavillion dv 1000 with Intel PRO/Wireless 2200bg...ethernet connects great, but wireless will not connect. Note the following:
a) The wireless router shows up fine on my list of available connections.
b) When I click to connect to the network, my computer just endlessly tries to connect..."waiting for network" even though the router is in the same room with me and showing full strength on my list of available networks.
c) I am able to connect to other wireless connections fine (though they happen to be my neighbors' unsecured networks)
d) I have updated my driver (as well as rolled it back). I have checked security settings multiple times (the router company suggested this). I have even fiddled with settings I probably shouldn't have (with the configuration of my driver or TCP/IP settings)
e) I have tried repairing my wireless connection at which point it says "Windows cannot finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Connecting to the wireless network". How helpful is that...

Hey, any advice at this point...I'll try it. I've been struggling for weeks in my free time to get this set up. At this point, I have no idea what to try.
